Hair Tip of The Day

“Nikki, what is an ACV rinse good for? I’ve heard that it can be used in place of a shampoo?”

I’ve never done one, because I’m prone to dry hair. But Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) rinses are good for restoring balance to the hair (pH levels), providing slip for detangling, and sealing the cuticle for lots of shine. It helps get rid of product residue and build-up, revealing soft, bouncy hair. ACV rinses are also good for curlies with dandruff issues.

Here’s an easy ACV Rinse recipe:

  • Mix 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar with 1 quart distilled water and use as a final rinse after shampooing.

    Using an ACV that has the “Mother of Vinger” which is the cloudy gathering at the bottom of the bottle (technically, its a composition of cellulose and acetic acid bacteria that develops during fermenting process) made a big difference for my hair. Years ago I used regular ACV and not a brand such as Bragg and I did notice a bit of dryness, but not anymore.

    Using an ACV rinse on your hair aids in sealing the cuticle, creating shiny hair with less tangles.
    Pour it on your head and massage into the hair and scalp with your fingers. Rinse with lukewarm water to remove.This will remove build-up from your hair and scalp. I always followup with a good conditioner.

    ACV rinses can be good for dry hair girls too. I’ll use it sometimes as a final rinse after I’ve (co)washed, sometimes using a hair tea instead of plain water or adding a little honey for extra shine. It doesn’t dry my hair out. Instead it makes it smoother and softer.
